Below are examples of dental emergencies:

Toothache or accidents

The dentist will be able to quickly advise you if it is an emergency or not.  To do so, explain your symptoms by answering the following questions:

  • What has happened? When did it happen? How did it happen? Where did it happen?
  • The age of the child (if not you)?
  • Which teeth are affected? (milk teeth or permanent teeth)
  • Specify if you have other parts of the face affected (cheeks, nose, lips, tongue, gums)

Then relieve the pain. Take a pain reliever commonly available at the pharmacy, but don’t put the tablets on your sore teeth. Hold an ice pack against your face at the site of the sore tooth. Do not put a heating pad, hot water bottle or any other heat source on your jaw. Heat will make things worse rather than better.

Broken or chipped tooth

Broken teeth can almost always be saved. Call us and tell us what happened. We will arrange a place for you right away. If it is a small break, we will use a white filling to fix the tooth. If the fracture is larger, more extensive treatment may be necessary. Your tooth may also need a crown.

Lost or torn tooth

We must act quickly and fairly!

Important: Do not attempt to clean an extracted tooth. Do not grasp it by the root. Store in a dry place!

If the tooth you just lost is an adult (or permanent) tooth, we may be able to replace it. You must act quickly. A tooth that is replaced within 10 minutes has a good chance of re-growing. After 2 hours, the chances are much slimmer.

If the tooth looks clean, put it back in place. If this is not possible, place the tooth that has been pulled out in a tooth rescue box: these boxes are available in pharmacies and dental offices*. If not, put it in a container with cold milk.

Come immediately to our office, you will see it is fast and convenient, our dental office is located 6 minutes walk from Lausanne SBB station. By getting help quickly, there is a good chance that the tooth will take root again.

Recessed teeth

A treatment is not always necessary, but it is urgent to consult a dentist in any case! The risk is even higher if the teeth are permanent!  The tooth must be put back in its place as soon as possible.

Lip or tongue bitten and bleeding

In case of bleeding, press the bleeding part of the mouth with a clean cloth. If the lip is swollen, use an ice bag to limit swelling. If the bleeding does not stop or if there are signs of concussion (dizziness, vomiting, unevenly dilated pupils), go to a hospital emergency room immediately. If possible, avoid lying flat on your back*.

Lost amalgam or composite

Put a piece of softened sugar-free chewing gum in the place where the filling was lost. This will protect the area for a short period of time. Then contact us for an emergency appointment.

Who pays for the costs of dental trauma?

Dental traumas (accidents) are insured.

  • Swiss employees are generally insured by their employer (occupational or non-occupational accident insurance).
  • All persons without employment in Switzerland (children, adolescents, pensioners) are generally covered by their competent health insurance at the time of the accident.

All dental accidents must be reported to the insurance company without delay! We will accompany you through the process.
